Install EKS on AWS

In this tutorial, how to Set Up EKS 1.16 cluster with eksctl . Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) gives you the flexibility to start, run, and scale Kubernetes applications in the AWS cloud or on-premises.

1.The first create a free account on AWS.

Link here:

Example: Create User: devopsroles-demo as the picture below:

2.Install AWS cli on Windows

Refer here:

Create AWS Profile

We easier to switch to different AWS IAM user or IAM role identiy by ‘export AWS_PROFILE=PROFILE_NAME‘ . I will not using ‘default‘ profile created by ‘aws configure‘. For example, I create a named AWS Profile ‘devopsroles-demo‘ in two ways:

  • ‘aws configure –profile devopsroles-demo’
E:\Study\cka\devopsroles>aws configure --profile devopsroles-demo
AWS Access Key ID [None]: XXXXZHBNJLCKKCE7EQQQ
AWS Secret Access Key [None]: fdfdfdfd43434dYlQ1il1xKNCnqwUvNHFSv41111
Default region name [None]:
Default output format [None]:

E:\Study\cka\devopsroles>set AWS_PROFILE=devopsroles-demo
E:\Study\cka\devopsroles>aws sts get-caller-identity
{
    "UserId": "AAQAZHBNJLCKPEGKYAV1R",
    "Account": "456602660300",
    "Arn": "arn:aws:iam::456602660300:user/devopsroles-demo"
}
  • Create profile entry in ~/.aws/credentials file

The content credentials file as below:

[devopsroles-demo] 
aws_access_key_id=YOUR_ACCESS_KEY 
aws_secret_access_key=YOUR_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY
aws_region = YOUR_REGION

Check new profile

export AWS_PROFILE=devopsroles-demo
# Windows
set AWS_PROFILE=devopsroles-demo

3.Install aws-iam-authenticator

# Windows
# install chocolatey first: https://chocolatey.org/install
choco install -y aws-iam-authenticator

4.Install kubectl

Ref here:

choco install kubernetes-cli
kubectl version

5.Install eksctl

Ref here:

# install eskctl from chocolatey
chocolatey install -y eksctl 
eksctl version

6.Create ssh key for EKS worker nodes

ssh-keygen
# Example name key is devopsroles_worker_nodes_demo.pem

7.Setup EKS cluster with eksctl (so you don’t need to manually create VPC)

eksctl tool will create K8s Control Plane (master nodes, etcd, API server, etc), worker nodes, VPC, Security Groups, Subnets, Routes, Internet Gateway, etc.

  • use official AWS EKS AMI
  • dedicated VPC
  • EKS not supported in us-west-1
eksctl create cluster  --name devopsroles-from-eksctl --version 1.16  --region us-west-2  --nodegroup-name workers --node-type t3.medium --nodes 2 --nodes-min 1 --nodes-max 4 --ssh-access --ssh-public-key ~/.ssh/devopsroles_worker_nodes_demo.pem.pub --managed

The output

E:\Study\cka\devopsroles>eksctl create cluster  --name devopsroles-from-eksctl --version 1.16  --region us-west-2  --nodegroup-name workers --node-type t3.medium --nodes 2 --nodes-min 1 --nodes-max 4 --ssh-access
--ssh-public-key ~/.ssh/devopsroles_worker_nodes_demo.pem.pub --managed

You have created a cluster, To find that cluster credentials added in ~/.kube/config

The result on AWS

Amazon EKS Clusters

CloudFormation

EC2

For example basic command line:

Get info about cluster resources

aws eks describe-cluster --name devopsroles-from-eksctl --region us-west-2

Get services

kubectl get svc

The output

E:\Study\cka\devopsroles>kubectl get svc
NAME         TYPE        CLUSTER-IP   EXTERNAL-IP   PORT(S)   AGE

Delete EKS Cluster

eksctl delete cluster --name devopsroles-from-eksctl --region us-west-2
